Biochemical coupling efficiency


OXPHOS coupling efficiency ET-coupling efficiency The biochemical coupling efficiency may be expressed as the OXPHOS coupling efficiency, j≈P = (P-L)/P = 1-L/P, or ET-coupling efficiency, j≈E = (E-L)/E = 1-L/E, which are equivalent at zero excess E-P capacity (ExP = E-P = 0).

Abbreviation: j≈P or j≈E
